Android screen mirroring is due Windows 10

Microsoft made a large numbers of announcements at its Surface event today, together with a full rundown of their Windows 10 October Update and services in its Surface Pro, Surface Laptop and Surface Studio lineups, but the Redmond company had much more surprises for its attendees beyond those headliners.

Reported by Engadget, Microsoft has also asserted it’s working on a new feature for its Your Phone app that will allow users to mirror an Android phone for their Windows 10 desktop.

Shilpa Ranganathan, Microsoft’s General Manager of Mobile Product Experiences, previewed the feature for event attendees, showing how a user will have a way to interact with their entire phone using their PC desktop without ever having to touch their actual device.

At the moment, it’s thought that the functionality will be limited to Android devices, and while no timeframe for screen mirroring continues to be offered (outside of it not being ready over time the Windows 10 October Update) it is expected to get to the near future.
